    We exist to encourage each other to become more like Jesus by
    building relationships with one another through Bible studies, fellowships,
    and service
     so we can glorify God by loving well and by being His hands and feet.

    So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are doing. (1 Thess. 5:11)
    Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a
    new person by changing the way you think. (Romans 12:2)
    What is important is faith expressing itself in love. (Galatians 5:6b)

    Upcoming Events

    RESET – Tuesday, August 28, 7:00-9:00pm, at Fourth Avenue
    We all need it from time to time, don’t we? A time to pause—maybe readjust, realign, start over, begin anew—with our mindset, our attitude, our heart…a time to RESET! Tues., Aug. 28, 7–9pm (in the Youth Center), we’ll sing, share and renew our bond of commitment to Him and to each other. Come join us as we RESET for His glory!

    Ladies Fall Bible Study – “Jesus Continued” by J.D. Greear (8-week study).
    “Why do so many of us think of Christianity as a lifestyle to which we conform, rather than a God with whom we commune?” 

    “Jesus gave His disciples the audacious promise that it was to their advantage that He go back to heaven because the Holy Spirit could then come to live inside of them. How many of us consider our connection to the Holy Spirit so strong and so real that we would call his presence in us better than Jesus beside us?
    In this eight-session Bible study, the authors will help you relate to the Holy Spirit in new ways, and you will see how you can have a satisfying, powerful relationship with God through the Holy Spirit over the course of the study.”

    Ladies Silent Retreat –   “CLAY” – Friday, September 21 – Saturday, September 22
